Estonia will establish a monument to SS-men again


Entering into parliament of Estonia (seven places from 101) the Conservative people's party intends to restore in the city of Likhula a memorable stone in honor of the Estonian soldiers who were at war on side of Nazi Germany.

As is noted, party members intend to hold at the beginning of September a festive event under the name "Day of Remembrance of a Monument in Likhul" which participants "will sing close him on spirit and patriotic songs". During the action the temporary monument which design copies the stone demolished in 2004 will be also established.

the Monument to legionaries of the 20th Estonian division CC has been established in Likhul on August 20, 2004. On a stone the soldier in the German form, with the German Iron cross and with the German submachine gun in hands has been represented. The inscription under a bas-relief said: To "The Estonians battling in 1940-1945 against the Bolshevism and for restoration of independence of Estonia". None of officials were present at the opening ceremony of a monument.

Installation of a monument has caused protests among the Russian-speaking population of the country. The corresponding statement was made also by the MFA of Russia. The government of Estonia has come to a conclusion that it is impossible to establish in the country monuments, "sense and which value is interpreted as attempt to revive the memory of the totalitarian modes occupying the country". On September 2 the 2004th the monument has been dismantled.
